Mitchell Workshop on Collider and Dark Matter Physics

The 2014 Mitchell Workshop on Collider and Dark Matter Physics will be held from 12th – 15th May 2014, at the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University. The workshop will focus on recent results from collider experiments and progress in the field of dark matter.

The first two days of the workshop will concentrate on the work being done at collider experiments, with talks from collaborations at both the Tevatron and the LHC. There will also be discussion of the implications of recent results, and related topics in particle phenomenology.

The final two days of the workshop will focus on a discussion of dark matter, with talks highlighting recent results from various direct and indirect experimental searches and also related topics in astrophysics and cosmology.
